Organizing student work

I am super excited to link up with Kristen at
Ladybug Teacher Files and Elizabeth at Fun in Room 4B for their summer blog party on organizing.  Be sure to check out some of the great ideas that have been shared so far!

One of the ways I try to help both my students and myself stay organized is my homework station.  In front of my desk, I keep a file organizer on an extra desk which has a colored file folder for each subject.  Students put their completed work in the correct folder then place a check by their name showing they have turned it in.  I can pull out the folder and check at a glance who has turned things in.  As part of my student jobs, I have a homework clerk whose job is to put the homework in numerical order.  This student can take the folder and put the papers in alphabetical order by using the student checklist inside.  When I am ready to sit down and correct their work I can simply grab a folder, check their work and enter it in my grade book very easily.


  1. What a great system! Thanks for linking up with us :)
